The company was obviously located in Brussels and produced auto headlamps from the era of carbide lamps to pre WWII. Apparently they supplied several automakers much like Lucas and Marchal have done over the years.

This link may help you a bit as the seller of some of those headlamps included a photo of a car I believe to be a pre WWII Feugeot.
